Travelers in town to visit the Mall of America might want to consider staying in Bloomington, where the mall is located. You'll have plenty of choices, as there are more than 50 hotels located within 10 miles of the famed mall. If you're staying in the city during winter, check and see if your hotel connects to the Minneapolis skyway system. A web of skyways connects more than 4,000 hotel rooms to a wide range of attractions and restaurants within the city, allowing visitors to experience Minneapolis without having to experience the city's notoriously chilly winter temperatures. (There's a skyway system in downtown St. Paul as well.)
